I went to KIA for my starting problems. They replaced 2 things and it was still starting funny...more so in the summer months. I never really had a problem in the winter. I suppose due to the cold. I took it to a new mechanic and he kept it over night. All in all the problem was the starter was going. He got stuck with it not starting and checked the starter and that was it. Never had a problem again since replacing it. I remember seeing a post about bulbs constantly going also. Someone said it was because of using after market parts and not genuine KIA parts. I too have a problem right now with my left signal and I will have to get the genuine part. $7 compared to $23 for a bulb. Ridiculous!! I don't remember seeing anything about the airbag light or anything about the radio light but I am sure there will be something in these posts to help you. It does seem that everything goes wrong right out of warranty though!! My starter issues started about 67,000. Good luck!!

I had problems with starting my 2006 kia sedona lx. Sometimes it would start and then it just would not. I changed the starter then starter relay. come to find out where your fuses are there is a little part of the box that is going bad. good news is that you can seperate it. first I was told 1500 just for the part. then found out the part was 500 because it seperates. After fixing that no starting problems at all.

Low beams head lights. After changing them repeatedly ever 6 months I changed the brand. I do not want to say which brand I switched from and to but since making this change I have had the same bulbs for 2 years.

2005 Kia Sedona. Anyone know why when the high beams are turned on it activates the blinkers on the van?

That's usually the switch inside the steering column and will require replacement. Common job for most mechanics, though.

My best friend is having the same problem with her headlights. The pattern is one blows about every 3000 to 4000 miles. Would you please share name of brand that is working for you?

Not sure what you mean by "brand" - dealership? Anyway, both of my headlight connectors (if that's the right word - the part that connects the headlight to the wiring harness) were replaced under warranty. The Kia dealership appeared to be aware of this problem.

We have headlights but no tail lights. We replace the EXT fuse, it just blows right away. Replaced one of the bulbs in the back, tail lights worked but the blinker lights stayed on. When we hit the brake, the left blinker would go on. Now, no left blinker, no tail lights. Just head lights and the right blinker works. Don't know what to do.
